's not forget the tea party aligned folks such as christine o'donnell, ken buck, plus todd akin who i guess is a tea party candidate but was in spirit only. they all lost senate elections that should have been slam dunks for the republicans. the gop needs to be careful. because they want to keep that as part of their constituency. they just don't want them running the show, i guess is what i'm trying to say. >> right. and if you put together all of those candidates that you just mentioned and these were all safe seats for the republicans in the senate. had they won those seats, they would be in charge today. they need it to harness the energy from the far right but not be taken over by it. i think a lot of sensible voices in the party are saying we've got a problem here. if we want to win again, we've got to do something about it. yet they've structured the system this way so that all of their members are just terrified of losing in a primary far more than they are of defying the will of the american electorate. the problem is going to be here for a long tile. but you're seeing the chris ch

on the street. >> i would be happy to see them put up a candidate like christine o'donnell. that smart thoughtful conservative with ideas and vigorous debates. negin farsad. >> i think they should start working with democrats. they might get something done and democrats don't all have cooties. >> true enough, most of them them--blah--lee. >> how about backing off the military bases all around the world. we don't defunded nasa. >> john: except for the pollution part, i think rand paul would agree. now time for today's f-bomb. did you anyone catch jim demint on "meet the press" he led congress to filibuster more bills than any other congress in history. he voted no on the lily ledbetter act and he doesn't feel that gays should teach school. you unveiled his plan to change the g.o.p. messages but changing all the ineffective messaging even though it has nothing to do about what the grownups at the table are talking about. take a look at demint is asked to pond to respond to bobby jindal's comment, and what is the plan. >> i talked to governor jindal yesterday because we're on the same pag

or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the republican process has allowed harry reid to remain majority leader of the u.s. senate. forget about being the conservative party or moderate party as nicolle wallace says, we've got to quit being the stupid party and do what william f. buckley told us to do 30, 40 years ago, that is play to win. you know, find the middle of the electorate and be conservative, but understand what the reality is in the middle of that electorate. and find the most conservative candidate that can win. we haven't done that for a very long time, and i can tell you this, we need to start doing this again right now. another great example, chuck hagel, republicans are against him, a republican. you look at the latest polls that have come out on hagel, americans support him by a 2 to 1 margin. with polls that just came out. it's one more example of how this party is taking such a narrow extreme view on so many issues that we can't see the forest for the trees. we can't make the arguments we need to make, which is that we need to balance the budge

candidates. without christine o'donnell, sharon angle, ken buck,ed to akin and richard mourdock, the party might today control the senate. how careful must be the republican picks be? tell us about the bench. we don't seem to talk about a deep bench for them. >> this might be the most fascinating story, more fascinating than the retirements themselves. in iowa there's a very conservative congressman, steve king, who might be eyeing the senate seat now vacated by tom ma harkin. he would have a great chance of winning a republican primary. in a general election it would be pretty tough. we're also going to see a very tough primary perhaps in georgia. and it will be interesting to see in west virginia whether the establishment republican running ends up getting a primary for the right. i think this is going to be the big dynamic to watch over the next year or so, thomas. >> let's look at massachusetts, though. there's a new poll out for former senator scott brown with an eight-point lead over the democratic party's generic candidate. then a 20-point lead over the democratic senatorial committ

mourdock in indiana, christine o'donnell in delaware. you see the strength of the grassroots. that's why the grading systems are so effective, because they put somebody on a target list for grassroots conservative organizations to take out in a primary, and if you go to their website, it's very slick. it's very well-done. very easy to click on somebody. you can see six or seven votes, and the way in which they penalize people for a vote that ordinarily would just be a common thing to take, for example something that might not be completely offset, let's say you're from a coastal area and you're supporting something -- some government money to go there for rebuilding if you get hit for a storm. that doesn't align. sorry if you're from louisiana, from florida. done. you might be the most conservative person of all time but because you voted to help out your district, you're going to get an "x" right there. it's really quite remarkable. >> it's absolutely incredible. clarence, heritage action is what's known as a social welfare organization. that means it can and has spent money on races. s

democrats but the fact they use a media farm with ties to the rn c, christine o'donnell, and, i mean, it's very sketchy. i think people want to spend all this money to oppose chuck hagel, that's fine but the fact we don't know who it is is a little disconcerting. >> here is a statement from a friend of mine, chad, president of the human rights campaign, one of the largest gay rights groups. he was conciliatory after hagel apologized for ace-tie gay comments. he said his apology and statement of support for lgbt equality is appreciated and shows just how far as a kubt we've konl from a former conservative senator from nebraska can have a change of heart on lgdt issues. tllt they are. talk about conciliation there, jim. the lgbt community and under the name there of the great organization human rights campaign are accepting him as an ally. let me get back to you. you're a student now as a reporter of media. you have always been a great reporter of media. now how media works into politics. are we seeing more of this subterfuge of this, apparent subterfuge? >> i think this is just the way it
